originally. They also have a museum and a yearly conference dealing with
 
all subjects dealing with Tesla. Sell video tapes from the International
 
Tesla Symposium. Of note: look for tapes from the Corum brothers and From
 
Bill Wystock these are the real thing, not the "fringe" stuff. Also look
 
for new books/tapes on the TESLA MAGNIFIER. This this the 3 coil version of
 
the tesla coil (primary, secondary(resonant or nonresonant), magnifier (
 
resonant)) which tesla experimented with at Colorado Springs. It is
 
more efficent than an ordinary 2 coil system because priamry-secondary
 
coupling can be much tighter.

I think it would be a good idea to add a kind of code for ROM Hacks, according to what is actually modified in the hack compared to the original game. Text, graphics, levels, sound, gameplay, etc. And integrate this code as a taxobox item. What do you think? -- [[User:Trax|Trax]] 17:20, 3 July 2007 (EDT)

is reprints or compilations of old material which is not generally
 
availible at most libraries. Interesting stuff but perhaps not as useful as
 
the newer books. They now have the books by Robert Iannini and Gordon
 
McComb (see below). They have Tesla Coil design software by Walt Noon
 
(I haven't personally seen it although Rickard Quick says he helped Walt
 
develop it) and a couple of small books on building coils. Also, you can
 
get Tesla's "Lectures, Patents, and Researches"...

There is a really strange and cool homebrew version of SMW for the old NES.  I didn't really want to start a whole new page for it here but if you modify RAM address $037F, that is the level that you will go to from any spot on the map. The game is unfinished and ends early so you can see more of the levels (and even BOWSER!) if you try bigger numbers in that address.
Lindsay now has the "Tesla Coil Builder's Guide to the Colorado Springs
 
Notes" by Richard Hull of the Tesla Coil Builders of Richmond(Va) (TCBOR).
 
For those unfamiliar with the CSN, they were Telsa's notes of expreiments
 
done during his stay at Colorado Springs. HE developed many of his ideas on
 
MAGNIFIER design there. The CSN are not particularly useful to the hobbiest
 
so Hull wrote some notes which clarify many points of detail. He back up
 
many of his statements with results of impressive work done by the TCBOR.
 
Many of the TCBOR's are shown in excellent photographs of thier standard
 
coil and many different magnifier designs. A MUST HAVE book! About $20.

Information on theory, design, and construction of tesla coils.
 
Also has trade/sale section for those hard to find parts: high voltage

Builders Clubs like the one in Virginia (TCBOR) which is doing some
 
fantastic work on Tesla's "extra" coil/ magnifier system.

Sounds goofy, but there a lot of interesting and workable designs here.
 
One chapter on a neon sign transformer based tesla coil. ~250,000volts.

somewhat outdated.

Issue has a construction project for a soild state tesla coil by Duane A.
 
Bylund. ~ 100,000volt system. This system illustrates the direct drive type
 
of Tesla coil ( like Tesla's extra coil system). He also used to supply
 
kits.

*INTERNET-freebies
 
Check out anon ftp to ftp.ee.ualberta.ca (circuit cookbook directory)
 
There is a nice small book by Harry Suomalainen called TESLA COIL THEORY
 
AND APPLICATIONS - it's in POSTSCRIPT. It covers standard spark gap driven
 
coils as well as direct drive soild state coil systems.
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
You will also want to check out the internet (ftp) site at:
 
>ftp.funet.fi
 
go to the directory pub/sci/electronics/tesla
 
There is some general literature as well as GIF's of Coils and some
 
programs for computing tesla coil parameters (Have not tried them).
 
This place is rather busy and allow only 80 anon ftps, so I suggest trying
 
at 5:00-7:00pm EDT.
 
This apparently has a few tesla coil desing programs plus (more imporatntly
 
in my opinion) text files of Richard Quick's Experiments and designs. There
 
is also a huge (~1Mb) text file of the last few years of discussion of
 
tesla coil desing and theory from the tesla@grendel list mentioned below.
 
So you didn't have to miss anything good!!! Definitly worth reading but
 
long!
 
 
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
There are at least two discussion groups running for tesla related stuff:
 
>usa-tesla@usa.net (send an email to get on the distribution list)
 
 
 
>tesla@grendel.objinc.com (send email to get on list) Run by Chip Atkinson
 
By far, this list has the most detailed technical discussions I  
 
have seen. These people are constantly sharing information on real
 
designs. They have many tips on obtaining parts or fabricating some
 
elements from scratch. It's a vey busy list, so you'd better have
 
plenty of disk space or a good printer! Richard Quick is probably
 
the most experienced builder on the list - He'll send (so far) a
 
2hr video of his work for $10 and PPD high quality tape. I'm
 
getting one.

I think it would be a good idea to add a kind of code for ROM Hacks, according to what is actually modified in the hack compared to the original game. Text, graphics, levels, sound, gameplay, etc. And integrate this code as a taxobox item. What do you think? -- Trax 17:20, 3 July 2007 (EDT)

Super Mario World for NES

There is a really strange and cool homebrew version of SMW for the old NES. I didn't really want to start a whole new page for it here but if you modify RAM address $037F, that is the level that you will go to from any spot on the map. The game is unfinished and ends early so you can see more of the levels (and even BOWSER!) if you try bigger numbers in that address.

That ROM is incredibly hard to find but it's possible - I found it somehow.
